Zapping collapsible sptes, a.k.a. 4k sptes that can be promoted into a
large page, is only necessary when changing only the dirty logging flag
of a memory region.  If the memslot is also being moved, then all sptes
for the memslot are zapped when it is invalidated.  When a memslot is
being created, it is impossible for there to be existing dirty mappings,
e.g. KVM can have MMIO sptes, but not present, and thus dirty, sptes.

Note, the comment and logic are shamelessly borrowed from MIPS's version
of kvm_arch_commit_memory_region().

Fixes: 3ea3b7fa9af06 ("kvm: mmu: lazy collapse small sptes into large sptes")

Queued, thanks.
